Conference day

So today is the day and I’m at the Empowered to Connect conference!

Let me say I was kind of nervous to come, but also really looking forward to it! Dr. Purvis is amazing. Really. And while I thought I was coming to refresh my brain cells and knowledge base about my child from hard places….i’m finding that I’m seeing the connections ever more to a couple of my kids who have other tough behaviors and issues. These kids have been home since infancy but have some difficult behaviors and over time it’s oh so easy to fall into the trap of worn down burnout. But, as you know and as I know…that is a mistake. And this conference is a refresher course on what can be done to help, in small simple but profound ways. This conference is a reminder to always connect – to not forget to try. Because their hearts still cry out for it. As does mine.

Thanks so much for helping make this happen tom! Plus, bonus points, I just got to say hello to a rock star blogger and mom: Lisa from “One Thankful Mom.”. Make my day! Shes just as beautiful and nice in person as you’d guess. Lovely.

Great day. Gonna be tired. Totally worth it.

  1. I bet Lisa was thrilled to meet you—she was supposed to tell you that you were one of my favorite blogs and that you inspire me in my Catholic faith journey. Laura (Lisa’s Sister)

    • Laura, rest assured you have an awesome and dutiful sister. She did say that – which made me grin and marvel. Thank you for such kind words! And your sis was so gracious – no surprise – and was sweet and also very busy! She’s working hard! So we didn’t get to visit long but even saying hello was such a treat. Fun!
